KUCHING: The adoption of ICT tools for teaching and learning including the provision of Raspberry Pi computers for primary schools in Sarawak has taken into consideration the students’ capacity and limitations in the use of technology platforms.

Education, Science and Technological Research (MESTR) Minister Datuk Amar Michael Manyin Jawong said a Raspberry Pi computer could serve this purpose well as it would provide more than 40 percent cost reduction compared to a standard PC or laptop.

“This savings means that more students can benefit from our limited budget,” he said in a statement in response to Kuching MP Dr Kelvin Yii’s earlier statement requesting the state government to justify its decision to supply all primary schools with Raspberry Pi computers.
